    Pros

    The Pension and benefits are very good with a good work-life balance. There is ample job security even though some departments are laying people off at the moment

    Former Employee - Communications Officer in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Former Employee - Communications Officer in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at Government of Canada full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good environment. It's not the greatest place for innovation or creativity - I felt a lot of my ideas and contributions were shot down.

    Cons

    Lazy people, government is axing employees at the moment, so low morale. It's a good job if you are used to the 9 to 5 work life.
